Well Cliff, as I am currently in the market for such a system, I am in the 
midst of
researching this newest option.  I just spoke to Icom an hour ago and gladly 
informed them of the news.  They had no idea, but dug a little while I waited 
and the engineer I had on the line was able to confirm our suspicions.  
Nevertheless it was news to him.  I guess you and I are just on the cutting 
edge here.  I first learned of the IC-821's demise last weekend while at the 
Charlotte hamfest and simultaneously learned of this upcoming option that now 
at least has a name.  I'm pretty sure that a price for us to look at is even 
further out on the horizon than even the rig itself.  I just spent the past 
hour or so digging around on the various Icom web sites and have seen no 
mention of the IC-910H.  I almost feel proud to be publicly announcing this 
upcoming option in equipment.  I assure you it was purley accidental when I 
discovered such a thing was in the works, for that matter the only rumor 
flying at the time was that Kenwood has something in the works and I say has, 
because they're
being real mysterious unlike Icom, which just means yea, they too have a rig 
in the works.  I'm sure either system will be a nice addition to the 
shack...Take care.
